  1. Will of Edward Beeston Long of Hampton Lodge proved 24/11/1825. The will opens with the bequest of Lucky Valley in Clarendon (with the enslaved people on it) and his moiety of Longville Park in St Dorothy (again with the enslaved people on it) to his eldest son Henry Lawes Long. He left in trust (his trustees were his brothers Charles Beckford Long and Robert Ballard Long and his son-in-law Charles Devon of Felbridge [?] Park Surrey) the 'manor house' called Moore Hall in St Mary's (together with the enslaved people on it) 'devised to me by the will of Mrs Susan Jane Dixon late of Cavendish Square' to be sold, with half the proceeds going to his younger son Frederick Beckford Long and half to repay his debts of £4000 to his brother Charles Beckford Long and whatever he owed to Messrs Rutherford and Jegon of Camomile St., merchants. He also left to his son Frederick Beckford Long £5199 in consolidated annuities which were held in trust under the marriage settlement of Edward Beeston Long's daughter Charlotte (since deceased without issue) to which he was entitled subject to the life interest of her husband George Wandisford Pigott. The residue of his estate, including the £2000 belonging to his daughter Charlotte as part of £6000 secured on Lucky Valley under Edward Beeston Long's own marriage settlement which had again reverted to him on her death, went to Henry Lawes Long.
